Hello hive!!

I'm a long-term amateur interested in dust capture... I am also a researcher who's trying to understand pollution and hazards of various types! 

Lovely to meet everyone here.
Cheers

Hello All,

I've been lurking for a little while - building a small shop inside my house and was drawn here by the need for more efficient dust collection in a relatively constrained space.

Cheers,

Greetings
I am an amateur wood worker. My shop is small and very dusty. I have a shop vac to which I added a dust collector but it is not very efficient. Am upgrading to a 2hp Harbor Freight. I want to build a capture system. I built one from a heavy duty plastic trash can and a traffic cone. Both collapsed under the suction and a lot of chips made it to the vac. I want to learn and buld a more efficient system.

Thanks for sharing this information!

 :)

Hello MrGlasspoole.  I live near Darmstadt and am just now setting up my hobby woodworking shop.  I am new to dust collection and want to build a Thien cyclone separator for my Bernardo dust collector.

Hi, I'm Kurt and I'm a hobbyist woodworker in Fort Mill, SC operating out of my 2-1/2 car garage.  I have a new HF unit that I got on sale for $150 (I love a deal). I'm halfway thru a 55 gal / tophat separator and have a question about inlet position.

Hi All,

Looking to convert a generic Chinese 3HP dusty.  Will be extracting as much as I can from this forum.

Cheers.

Hi, I am a retired engineer from a major auto manufacturer. 

My interests besides woodworking: grandkids (5 months to 7 years old), stock investing, computers, yard work/landscaping, home/auto maintenance. 

I plan to move my table saw and miter saw to the basement from the garage.  Iíll need a dust collection system to make that possible.  I am going to replace a workbench that is attached to a wall with a Ron Paulk's design inspired workbench.  I will place it in the center of my shop area in the basement.  I will attach my Bosch 4100 table saw to the new workbench.

Just found this great resource - thanks for all the info.

woodworking for years but only got my shop together in the last couple of years - time for proper dust control . . . . . .

Do have a couple of questions - how do I get permission to post?

Retired newbie.  Have done a lot of carpentry over the years and now moving into more sophisticated wood working.  Never paid much attention to dust until I got my first sheets of MDF.  Dust cover garage shop and coated everything including my brain.  So have been researching DC and stumbled on Youtube videos.  Have made about 6 with baffles to get 2 working ones.  have a few more to go.  found they work best when sticking to plans on another post.
